Qt Library Issues

  • Hi, I just started to work with Qt, and is so frustrating I gotta say.. Have so many issues (Installing and trying to run a program). I installed the QtCreator with MinGW Pack. SORRY IF MY ERRORS ARE STUPID.

    I just wanted to create a GUI Application from zero, but I have some errors. I watch a video on YouTube and I just typed everything from the video, but didn't work. The video start a blank project, then he was adding the files I got.

    Here's an image, so you can check my main errors. "Qt Issue":
    I have to say that when I type #include <Q.....> a list drops me some Lib's I could use, but QVBoxLayout dosn't appear.

    I Dont know if the .pro File is the problem, but Ill show you the code of this File.

    @HEADERS +=

    SOURCES +=

    Please, the problems I'm having with QT are the libraries, I'm just a beginner here, I searched for like 3 or 4 hours about this and didn't find anything yet.

    Thank you for your time.

  • Hello and welcome to devnet,

    if you want to start Qt from zero, I suggest to use one of the creator examples supplied with Qt 5.2 and have a look at the includes, then start modifiying the sample.

    Hi vitaR,

    The YouTube video is probably old, and talks about Qt 4.

    In Qt 5, the widgets are not in <QtGui> any more. They are in <QtWidgets>.

    To solve the problem, change your headers:
    // DON'T write this:
    #include <QtGui/QApplication>
    #include <QtGui/QVBoxLayout>

    // Write this:
    #include <QApplication>
    #include <QVBoxLayout>

    Anyway, if you want an up-to-date tutorial, follow the official one:
